Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation
Honourable Mary Polak
Province of British Columbia
Re: BC Métis Federation Follow Up
Dear Minister Polak,
I want to take this occasion as the President of the British Columbia Métis Federation (BCMF) to thank you once again for your efforts to meet with BCMF officials in June in order to better understand the current Métis crisis in BC. As your ministry reflects on current events and happenings, it is important to set the discussion within the historical record for a better understanding. For far too long in British Columbia’s history, all manner of government policies were employed to prefer a British or French notion of culture and to separate and assimilate First Nations and Métis and deny their distinctive cultures and histories.
